Well those used for around a month on eBay go for 100~ so if your wanting to try but not sure go for a used one

In my opinion best to wait for gear 2 the price of the first will drop even further. And both are similar but 2 being thinner and little sleeker

Gear 2 will be pretty useless at the beginning, due to completly new OS and once again, lack of apps. I would just go for Gear 1 at the moment, put Null there, and wait few months how's situation with the Tizen.
i don't expect anything nice though.

That is true completely forgot about the new os. Even if you are buying the 1st one I'd still wait for the price drop. Really just depends how long your willing to keep it for.

I just sold my watch after a month, have loads of other watches, dont get me wromg having the gear felt good for the first week but got bored of it after

I just picked mine up for $199.99/211.44 after tax from AT&T. You have to order online to get that price, but they honor it with in store pick up.

I warn you in advance if you try to use the split it onto two cards in store option, using the online system, most of the employees don't know how to do it and it takes a long time for them to actually process that.

I ordered online and chose Store Pick Up in the cart. No offense, but if AT&Ts store employees can't process a standard system transaction - not like I did something funny, they offered the option - that's bad training. It did take me a few extra minutes in the store because, they are still charging the $299.99, but everything turned out smooth. Just bring the card you used online and an ID.

Best Buy matches Amazon prices that Amazon fulfills and ships. I just got one for $199 yesterday.

I will wait a little bit until the new Tizen-Gear arrive to the shelves and see if the price of the GG drops even more. My 2 cents.
